Nice smooth playing. I love all the old Carter Family tunes and harmonica sure goes well with them I think.

Reed Smith replied to the topic 'Whats Amps Do Not Distort?' in the forum. yesterday

I think you mean feedback, as most like the amp to distort. If you want a clean sound get an Audex Fireball
and go straight to P.A. or a solid state amp. Bear in mind, most any speaker(combo amp) is going to
FEEDBACK when a microphone is positioned in front of it. On the "seriously" side, an amp will only make
ones playing louder. 95 percent of the tone a harmonica player generates comes from them, so if you can
seriously get a good acoustic tone then you will have a serious amplified tone. If not, an amp will only make
your mistakes/slop/poor technique/ whatever, stick out like a sore thumb, "Crap in, Crap out," comes to mind.

devermb created a new topic ' Whats Amd Do Not Distort?' in the forum. yesterday

I am looking for a good powerful inexpensive amp that does not distort when I play in front of it. Why do some amps distort and others do not? Which ones should I take seriously?

I Feel like i am making progress at a satisfactory rate, i may post some recordings later on, few weeks or something' not sure. I Love the harmonica always have. There was a period where i got pretty discouraged because i felt like i couldn't learn to bend notes it took ages of practice and reading and watching videos it's not something' that can be easily explained and understood its just something one has to kinda well... figure out. Past that now and my bending is getting more accurate by the day i am practicing at least an hour a day and a good ten to twenty minutes of that is just bending random notes, giggles. I remember the tip that made it click for me was it being described similar to whistling on an inhale through the holes. As to my personal playing style i play mostly blues, hence why i tried so hard to learn to bend accurately. I also do a little folk and children's music, the first songs i learned to play are "On top of old smokey" and "Song of Time" From 'Zelda Ocarina of Time', for those who don't know it's a video game from the late 90's. i did have old smokey memorized but i forgot parts of it since i have moved on to more complicated pieces. Still havn't got the hang of "Boogie Woogie Blues" giggles.

As to my curiosity about the instrument, i love it and every new subtle technique or method or influence is a new challenge to learn a new goal to achieve, thats one of the things that drew me to the instrument, it's a life long journey, I do plan to also learn guitar i have my wife's guitar that she played back in middle school, bit small its a 3/4 size but i will make due with it until i can afford to buy a full size.

I don't really remember what initially attracted me to it when i was five or six but i remember hearing harmonica on the tv in my late teen years and going "OH yeah that's what it was!" And i went out and bought a set that same day. anyway a bit more of my story in regards to my music.

Hi Allison, above all don't get discouraged,I have been playing on and off for 64 years with a break of 54 years and when I hear some players I too feel like a beginner. Just listen to other players and use your own judgement as to how you want to play.I am a dedicated Chromatic player by the way. I know it is boring,but keep practicing your scales when you can and sing the words of your song in your head as you are playing. Try one line at a time until you have got it right.Keep puffing.Eric33

Hi Allison, welcome to HC. Sometimes I also not being satisfied with my playing. Though I have been playing diatonic since my school life, still I do not know bending and many other techniques of diatonic and it is true I am a beginner(4/5 months) in chromatic. Feel like beginner will motivate you for better playing. Stick on harmonica, but must be curious everything about harmonica and other musical instrument.....Swapan
